Post Today in Cubs History: June 15

1951 Just before game time at Wrigley Field, the Cubs and Dodgers make a 4-for-4 trade: OF Andy Pafko, P Johnny Schmitz, C Rube Walker, and IF Wayne Terwilliger go to Brooklyn for C Bruce Edwards, OF Gene Hermanski, IF Eddie Miksis, and P Joe Hatten. To the surprise of fans, the 8 appear in their new uniforms. The Cubs get the best today as Bruce Edward knocks in 4 runs, three on a homer, off Carl Erskine, and Miksis fields well. Pafko hits his 13th homer in a losing cause and will incur an injury in this series that will sideline for three weeks in July. But the New York Post expresses the sentiment of most, calling it "the most barefaced swindle in years."

1963 Ernie Banks, with 15 home runs up till now, will hit just three after this date. He is diagnosed with sub clinical mumps, a disease that stays in his blood and leaves him rundown and sick.

1964 In a six player deal, the Cubs trade Lou Brock (will stay with team for fifteen years amassing 3,023 career hits) to Cardinals for Ernie Brogilo (will last two and half seasons with 7-19 record for Chicago).

1969 Cubs SS Don Kessinger sets a National League record with his 54th straight errorless game to start a season, but Chicago loses 7–6 to start a doubleheader split at Cincinnati.

» Cubs' OF Sammy Sosa hits three home runs in Chicago's 6–5 victory over the Brewers. The three round–trippers give him 15 in his last 16 games

Baseball season's underway...
So you'd better get ready for a brand new day
Hey Chicago whattya say?
